The Chicago Bears wrapped up their final practice earlier today in preparation for the Detroit Lions, and from an injury standpoint, there were a few changes.
Inside linebacker Shea McClellin (knee), safety Antrel Rolle (knee) and cornerback Terrance Mitchell (hamstring) were all held out of practice today and are all listed as doubtful (75% chance they won't play) for Sunday's game.
Wide out Eddie Royal (ankle) missed practice today, but he's listed as questionable (50% chance he'll play), and tight end Martellus Bennett skipped today's practice with a quad injury, and he's also questionable. Head coach John Fox said Bennett suffered his injury at practice yesterday.
After missing Thursday's practice, defensive lineman Ego Ferguson (knee) was limited today, but he's listed as doubtful for the game.
EDIT: Ferguson was placed on season ending IR, the Bears signed his replacement off the Packers practice squad
Other Bears limited at practice today and listed as questionable were OLB Pernell McPhee (shoulder), DL Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle), WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), LT Jermon Bushrod (shoulder), DL Will Sutton (elbow), G/T Patrick Omameh (ankle), and WR Josh Bellamy (groin).
Could Jeffery, who hasn't played since week 1, finally lace em up on Sunday?
Was this a better week for #Bears WR Alshon Jeffery and his hamstring injury? "Probably," coach John Fox said.— Adam Jahns (@adamjahns) October 16, 2015
So for those playing along at home, that's 4 Bears doubtful and 9 Bears questionable, which is better than last week when Chicago had 16 players on their injury list.
The Detroit Lions have already ruled 3 starters out for the game, outside linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (calf) and tight end Eric Ebron (knee).
They list three players as questionable, running backs Joique Bell (ankle) and Theo Riddick (groin), and safety James Ihedigbo (quad).
Starting guard Larry Warford (ankle) is among 6 players they list as probable (25% chance they won't play). Warford missed the last two weeks, but he's expected to be in the starting line up on Sunday. Here are the other probable Lions, DE Jason Jones (knee), CB Darius Slay (hip), DE Darryl Tapp (ankle), T LaAdrian Waddle (knee) and WR Golden Tate (hip). Of these 6, only Tate and Slay were limited at practice, the others were full go.
